Can the kernel be updated even if kmod-nvidia is not available?


Lately, I have been running into issues with the Nvidia proprietary driver. I had installed akmod-nvidia but it couldn't build the kernel module for newest kernels.

The problem has been solved but I wonder if it would have been a better idea to install the package kmod-nvidia (especially because it wasn't my computer and I couldn't fix it easily).

Will kernel updates be blocked if the corresponding package kmod-nvidia is not available?
